    i just registered on your site, and i cant believe that i have the honor to be first to congratulate you on 1.000 Daily words and 200 Weekly activities.
    i’ve been coming to your site for few weeks and its very useful.
    there are many sites, but i chose yours as my main source for Chinese.
    and i cant wait to see 2.000 because by then i will surely write to you in (bad) Chinese!
